Chocolate, Coconut & Caramel Slice

3.2.13



Super quick and easy, an indulgent slice that needs to be hidden in the cupboard and pulled out once a day, or frozen in portions, or shared with neighbors, or sold at a bake sale...anything to avoid eating too much, otherwise you'll never forgive me!

250g butter, softened
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup dessicated coconut

1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 tin condensed milk caramel
60g butter, softened
1 tbsp golden syrup


Preheat oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Line the base and sides of a 28 x 21cm slice tin with baking paper. In a big bowl beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract until pale and soft. Add cocoa, flour, baking powder and coconut, and mix well. Press 3/4 of the mix into the tin and smooth firmly with the back of a tablespoon. Pop in the fridge while you prepare the rest. Mix condensed milk, caramel, butter and golden syrup in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate while you do the dishes! Pour caramel mix over base and sprinkle over remaining base mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes until cooked through. Cool, slice in tin, then hide it in the cupboard - don't say I didn't warn you!
